viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. centrally involving the attempted christmas bombing in the united states, before we get to it, i want to give you some of my own thoughts about that attempted terrorist attack. senator dianne feinstein says that she believes the united states government should overreact rather than underreact to these kinds of events. isn't that exactly backwards? the purpose of terrorism is not to kill the few hundred that are attacked. but to terrorize the tens upon tens of millions who watch. terrorism is unique as a military strategy and that it depends for its effectiveness on the response of the society. for it to work all of us have to respond with fear and hysteria. so far we are doing just that. i don't meaning to suggest by this that the system worked. obviously it didn't. when u.s. officials got information from the terrorist's father they should have immediately checked if he had a visa and hut him on a no-fly list and not allowed him to enter an airplane with a bomb, makeshift bomb. these are all mistakes and should be fi

just returned from yemen. you had talks with the president of yemen. is the united states going to have direct involvement there, in other words, troops on the ground or launching strikes from inside yemen? >> well, in fact, you taukd to the yemeni foreign minister, as well, and he was quite clear that yemen does not want to have american ground troops there and that's a good, good response for us to hear, certainly. >> wonderful ground troops there. >> no, of course, we would always want a host nation to deal with a problem itself. we want to help, we're providing assistance so we're going to provide more assistance in the course of this year than we did last year and after i think having zeerode it out back, if you recall, '08. this is an effort that we want to help them to deal with a problem that threatens their very rid of government and their very existence as you know it. >> you talk about providing more aid. from what i can gather, aide w increased by $2 trillion in 2008 and 2010. you said when you were there it was going to double this year or next year. is that going to happe
-- the world's leading communication nation, the united states, has been at least until recently outcommunicated by mass murdered living in the most remote areas of afghanistan and pakistan. and we have to take the public information space back from the enemy in order to succeed. and ashley is pioneered such creative ideas as using cell phone technology and such obviously ideas as countering their abuse of low wattage fm station to say terrible lies. next to her, is valley nee 15. he came to us from and has just written another one of the wonderful books. he was working on pakistan for us and not on iran, since that always appeared in the blogs inaccurately. i think we are missing someone. tim who came to us from afghanistan. a representing the future of the foreign service. we have a whole lot of other people in the back there, including in the department, from nine other agent sis plus the state department. strobe, what i'd like to say, the most common question i get in when i walk down the street or run into people is the most valid. why are we in afghanistan? that's a fair qu

statement on thursday made a statement in acknowledgement that the united states is at war in a statement that could have been written by dick cheney and delivered by president obama. the 9/11 commission, as you'll recall, john, said al qaeda and extremists are at war with the united states, we were not at war with them. he's finally made that acknowledgement. the problem is, as you pointed out right there, is that he's giving mixed signals to the intelligence and law enforcement communities where he's treating this as a criminal justice problem in giving these foreign enemy combatants the full panaple of constitutional rights which they are not entitled. just this week, he's had a consistent approach. when you are taking the worst of the worsts giving them constitutional rights, bringing them to new york city to have a circus atmosphere of a trial. on the one hand, he's prosecuting very effectively with the military component escalating the drone attacks in afghanistan, pakistan and yemen. i've given him credit for that. on the other hand, closing gitmo, shutting down enhanced interrog

in the united states and elsewhere and the vietnam war that was fought on the ground if the whole of the vietnam and communist, the rest would quickly follow. the so-called domino effect. as it happened the dominoes fell not in asia in the 1970's but eastern europe in 1989. we shouldn't forget either that thanks largely to the huge population of china, more than one-fifth of humanity still live under what may be regarded as communist rule. up until 1989 there were 16 communist states as i would define them. oddly there are 36 countries today which were at one time communist. that contradiction is to be explained by the fact the soviet union, one state broke up and became 15 states and czechoslovakia and yugoslavia also broke up so there'll be were 16 communist states but there were 36 countries that were communist and today there are five common is countries, china, vietnam, laos, north korea and cuba. the first three have been developing market economies on a substantial private sectors. the hybrid regimes, political economist economically not. china has been described as a state of party cabal
or asia to the united states, of course that should raise suspicions. but going after women with head scarves is ineffective. >> abernethy: so are you saying that you and other muslim leaders come down more on the side of individual freedom that you do on secuty? >> no, i think we have to have both. if you are going to stigmatize or isolate a population, that feeds into radicalization. part of the radicalization problem is when a community feels isolated, and when one person... and we're talking about now the concern over lone wolves or lone recruits, if that person feels desperate, depressed, then he becomes prey for extremist recruiters, and we should do anything and everything to help accelerate integration of muslims into american society. >> abernethy: after the christmas day near-disaster in the air near detroit, and some other recent events, too, do you sense a growing backlash against muslims in this country? >> there's a rise of the mob mentality. you read the comments on a number of stories, you get the emails, you get the phone calls. and i fee unfortunately, that the level

committee, as calla adapts its tactics, have the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only improving airport security but looking overseas and our intelligence gathering, are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game, but this is a war and there are times when i think because it is such an unconventional war that people in our country may forget it. it's a war with many battlefields. we're on the verge of really an extraordinary turn around and success in iraq. president obama is committed to win the war in afghanistan and i think we've got an extraordinary team there that john and i visited a few days ago and we will succeed in afghanistan, we've chased some of the al qaeda enemy to yemen but the fact is that in the last year there have been more than a dozen known attempted terrorist attacks on the homeland of the united states. three of them broke through our defenses. two of them successfully killing people, one in arkansas earlier this year where a u.s. army recruiter was killed at his recruiting station simply because he was wearing the uniform
learned a great deal about the affiliate in yemen, we knew that they sought to strike the united states and the they were recruiting operatives to do so. the intelligence community did not prioritize particular streams of intelligence. second, this contributed to a larger failure analysis, a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that existed across the community which, together, could have revealed what the attacker was planning. third, there are shortcomings in the system, and he was allowed to board the airplane in amsterdam for detroit. the u.s. government had the information to potentially uncover this lot. rather than a failure to connect and share intelligence, this was a failure to understand the intelligence that we had. this is why we took swift action following christmas, adding more individuals to the no-fly list, including current visa information in warnings of people with suspected ties to terrorism. today we are looking at additional threats across multiple agencies. first, i am directing the intelligence community to immediately begin assigning specific responsibil
the homegrown terrorism and why he's appealing to people in the united states suddenly is that the muslim community in the united states was thought to have been for a long time a very moderate, reasonable community. but now it's increasingly becoming radicalized according to national security experts in part because we've been at war for eight, nine years now in afghanistan and iraq. chris: and probably the result of eight years since 9-11, all this time of us fighting the muslims in the world. >> right. >> i think that we've been deluded by the bottom line good news here. the real good news is that when al qaeda actually tries to control a territory, like anbar province in iraq, average muslims don't like it. they don't like that style of life. they don't like the extremism. >> exactly. >> but it doesn't take very many people to cause a whole lot of trouble. chris: you said a couple thousand al qaeda out there probably. >> right. and the other thing is -- as to what joe said, national security experts estimate there is -- well, there's 28 to 30 known attacks that have been foiled agains

-- the major threat to the united states was the terrorism attacks in the country. there was a profound emphasis on al-qaeda and terrorism up until i think the decision to go into iraq. and then the operations in iraq consumed all of the energy. the situation in yemen has deteriorated over the last several years because of a concentration on iraq and a concentration on efforts tran gential at best to al-qaeda. this president understands that the threat to the country are bands of al-qaeda terrorism. >> chris: i don't want to relitigate the bush years but let me ask you about a specific decision that jon kyl talked about that has stuck in a lot of people's craw and that is the decision to charge abdulmutallab as a criminal defendant instead of as an enemy combatant. he did talk but only for 30 hours and the fact is according to a lot of interrogators 30 hours is not enough. why not? what is the -- let me ask you it this way? what is the downside to continuing to treat him as an enemy combatant? >> well, first of all, we have charged and in many cases convicted hundreds of individuals sin
of the united states. three of them broke through our defenses. two of them successfully killing people. one in arkansas earlier this year where a u.s. army recruiter was killed at his recruiting station because he was wearing the uniform of the u.s. army, and second, of course, nidal malik hasan, the murderer at ft. hood. and the fourth was only by an act of god was not a disaster, and that's umar farouk abdulmutallab, the detroit bomber. in any war, when the enemy breaks through your lines, have you to regroup and strengthen your defenses. in this war, we cannot get any goal less than 100% success. that means we have to close the gaps. i think some people have to be held accountable for the mistakes, the human errors that the president acknowledged that enabled the nigerian bomber getting on the plane. >> if somebody -- excuse me for interrupting, but if somebody should be accountable, who? >> i think the investigation would show that. it's clear beginning with the department of state when the father came in, not only shoot game have been sent to the national counterterrorism center, but s
on was the purpose of in the united states after 1964 and 1965 because there were these three legislative changes that happened on the national level but fundamentally changed america and essentially the foundations for the kind of society that could elect somebody like barack obama, president in 2008 and those are the voting rights act of 65, the civil rights act of '64 and immigration act of 65 and most people don't know the legislation's and they all happened under lyndon johnson and fundamentally transform who is american, who can vote, who can participate in the american's creation of a society and political system and so when i decided to do is put together an alternate tie line of defense from 65 to the present that are important from an arab american perspective so of course these are important to all americans like 9/11 and other things since the american memory is much shorter than for example the air of memory. those defense the 73 energy crisis or the 91 gulf war passed from american memory as a significant moments and then other defense like what happens in california 1985 are comple

"state of the uni's sound of sunday" for january 10th. >>> john mccain says recent attacks proved to him while americans are safer than they were before 9/11, that's a far cry from saying they're safe. >> al qaeda can land most anywhere. where there's fertile ground, they're going to breed. now, the latest, of course, is yemen where there certainly is a significant challenge. al qaeda continues to inhabit areas along the afghan/pakistan border which again argues for success in afghanistan, but i think that we have to continue our emphasis and our foe kution focus on the fact this challenge is not going away anytime soon. >>> senator mccain's traveling parter, joe lieberman of connecticut, says the administration must find out what went wrong
possible attacks on the united states. and i really believe the president and attorney general holder really should rethink this. they should really rethink this rigid commitment to the criminal justice system. after all, this guy came from outside the country. what he was planning was an attack on america. this is a is war-like act. he should not be treated like a domestic criminal. >> larry: can you treat someone as a military combatant and then later try them criminally? >> you can do anything you want. the justice department could move him around in all different ways. the reality is in this particular case he should have been treated as an enemy combatant. after all, the president and the attorney general have authorized military tribunals. now, if you're going to have military tribunals and you're going to try some people in a military tribunal, somebody who comes to the united states with a bomb to blow up an airplane in one of our cities should be treated as a wartime criminal, not like a domestic criminal. and that may be an academic dispute for some people, but here's the di
being released in the united states? >> yes. >> paul: how would that work? >> someone would bring habeas proceeding. some federal judge would decide whether the evidence presented to him, again some of this may be classified evidence that either can't be presented or only in redacted form. isn't sufficient to justify holding him. then he's going to have to be released. the question becomes then where he's released? ideally he should be deported. if no country is willing to take him the supreme court case, puts a six month limit on how long we can hold him. even the supreme court said, we're not talking about terrorism cases. these things have a way of ratcheting up and becoming -- i don't though whether that little exception [ inaudible ] is seen as an exception would hold. >> paul: as long as guantanamo is open if you have that hearing it could be held there indefinitely while looking for a place outside the united states where they could be held. >> i stress, held under humane conditions. it is a very well run, professionally run facility. all the skills running are going to have to be mark twain once came back to the united states from london and said the newspaper reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. democratic leaders argue that is the case and washington following the news that two democratic senators and a democratic governor had decided not to stand for reelection. north dakota senator byron dorgan, elected in 1992 after serving 12 years in the house, is stepping down, and so senator chris dodd, who was elected in 1980. byron dorgan's announcement took a lot of people by surprise, but chris dodd was the first to acknowledge that he was facing an uphill battle for reelection. >> i am very aware of my present political standing here at home in connecticut. but it is equally clear that any search and predictioabout an election victory or defeat -- to a prediction about an election victory or defeat nearly a year from now would be absurd. >>dodd, dorgan, colorado gov. bill ritter all standing aside following republican victories in gubernatorial races in virginia and new jersey. is the handwriting on the wall for democrats, mark? >> it is somewhere. i
the president of the united states to stop the nonsense. it is nonsense if we are in a war that you hall a guy off or blow a civilian airliner out of the sky and put him in jail in detroit. you hand him over to the military who does what they have to do, find out how he got there and where they live. you know and i know it. everybody watching it knows it colonel. when is president obama going to get it? >> probably when it's too late for many americans and other victims. you know, if you really look what brennan and napolitano had to say of the three-page memorandum oh they signed, the concrete recommendations are basic. buy more stuff, upgrade i.t. systems and again, we don't need more stuff. we need better ideas and we need determination, the determination to win. i have to disagree with you on one other thing. i do want heads to roll. >> bill: no. >> but a leader is responsible for everything his or her.... >> bill: you know how it works. you were in the military your whole life, obama's people in the counter intelligence agencies are taking their cues from him. so it's not fair to fire the

improper comments." shortly after that, barack obama of course now the president of the united states, came out with his own statement where he says as far as i'm concerned, the book is closed. and many other african-american leaders have come out backing harry reid saying perhaps this was a poor word choice but citing harry reid's work in civil rights legislation and civil rights on the judiciary, african-americans on the judiciary in nominations that have come through the senate saying harry reid deserves a second chance on this. mike steele is another african-american leader in this country, of course on the other side of the aisle as chairman of the rnc. this morning he says there is a double standard and that reid should step down. >> there is this standard where democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own, but if it comes from anyone else it is racism. it's either racist or it's not and it is inappropriate, absolutely. >> reporter: now all this comes as harry reid was already in a great deal of political trouble, alex
? senator reid apologizing in phone calls not just to the president of the united states but to other african american officials and leaders. he talked to the reverend al sharpton who has slammed similar comments in the past. reverend sharpton joins us on the telephone. he is in st. louis where he is out on the road. good morning. thanks for being with us on the fox news channel. >> good morning, eric. >> what did the senator say to you in the phone call? >> well, he said that he regretted his remarks and he profusely apologized and he said that he clearly felt what he said was wrong and i told him i felt the use of the word negro dialect was certainly offensive but i think we have to look with the other point that he was bringing out and that is the comfort level of some american voters. i think what his analysis of what he felt then senator obama who ultimately won would appeal to voters and i think that that was no different than any number of commentators that have said that because senator obama was nonthreatening that he could appeal to different voters. >> are you saying that s
of yemen is vowing to work with the united states in hunting down terrorists in his country, but he is also opening the door for dialogue with al-qaeda. >> julie: and a shakeup in time slots for two late night show hosts. nbc have floated an offer on the table and they have heard back from one of the hosts. >> gregg: president obama says he accepts an apology from harry reid. he said at the time then candidate obama could win the white house because obama is a light-skinned african-american with no negro dialect. he says the matter is closed but it's unlikely, republican lawmakers, at least some of them are ready to let the issue drop. major has the latest. hi, major. >> good afternoon. it started yesterday with president obama saying he fully accepts harry reid's apology. today, democrats closed ranks. started with tim cain and other senators appearing on variety of talk shows. there is no surprise. reid and his staff organized a number of conference calls all with various democrats appearing on the sunday talk shows. apologies should be accepted. even one gave him a clear indication that
than that of the united states? >> number one, by hire only qualified people. very well educated people. we train them very well. we cannot train them as this country until september 11th 12 hours training? and you become expert? this, in our dreams couldn't accept it. and then, on the dock training for weeks. then, test them nonstop. anyone who fails go home. thank you very much. we're dealing with life, not with business. money, you can replace. life, you cannot. >> but there is something behind that. it appears that the israelies view that threat as something severe, you know people are out to get you. the statement is that it's not paranoia if they're out to get you. you know the terrorists want to kill you. do americans not get that? >> i think we do comprehend it. we don't want to do the right steps to be able to be pro active and stop being reactive. look what happens since december, 1988, pan american in lockerbie. 472 people lost lives. why? no security. what we learned from this? nothing. september 11th came. 3,000 people lost lives. what we learned from this? nudge something

relationship between the secretary of state and the president of the united states. >> i think it's true. really think that hillary clinton one of her great talents is to sort of remake herself. she is a homework doing, very studious, very serious, very smart person and she has been a very good secretary of state and a very loyal member of the administration. whether it is bill clinton trying to play along or hillary clinton's ability to keep bill clinton under control, they have not produced any of the drama that everybody suspected would really color the administration if she was secretary of state and i think that it's just been a remarkable turnaround from all of the clintonian drama that soaked the campaign in the primary and even some into the general election. i think that's true. it's just been a complete reversal. >> a.b., you mention the fact that harry reid's comments were on the board. that brings me to the point that, of the 200 or so people that were reportedly interviewed by these two very well respected journalists, one from "time" magazine, one from "new york" magazine,
. the president of the united states can't be saying to the world, we're going to give him a fair trial but he's going to get convicted. if we're doing this for public relations and creating these burdens on ourselves, i don't see why we want to do that. this man organized an attack from outside the united states on the united states. it was an attack very much like pearl harbor, and nobody would have ever thought of prosecuting the people who attacked pearl harbor in a civilian court. president lincoln didn't do that, president roosevelt didn't do that, president bush didn't do that. i don't know why president obama wants to do that. >> larry: back in 60 seconds. ♪ well, look who's here. it's ellen. hey, mayor white. how you doing? great. come on in. would you like to see our new police department? yeah, all right. this way. and here it is. completely networked. so, anything happening, suz? she's all good. oh, my gosh. is that my car?

they missed again. a known nigerian man almost entered the united states with a bang after intelligence failed to connect the clues. as president obama explained it was assist temperature mcfailure. post-9-11 intel reforms have been partly integrated. institutional, cultural and technical barriers limit the sharing of vital information. to be fair, it's not a simple job. much is collected and analysts looking for needles in highway stacks have foiled many past plots. in this game, almost is never good enough. no one designing an intel system from scratch would create the hodgepodge systems we have. we need fewer operations. making a change won't be easy. it's akin to repairing an airplane in mid-flight. we need to fix the problem with a sense of post-9-11 urgency before our luck runs out. thanks for joining us for this week in defense news, i'm vago muradian. you can watch this program online or e-mail me. i'll be back next sunday morning at 11:00. have a great week.
